Experienced executive will provide support and advice to management team
SeaLead has announced the appointment of veteran liner shipping executive SC Chan to the role of Chief Executive Advisor. In this new position, he will report to SeaLead Managing Director Henry Schmidl and will be based at the company’s headquarters in Singapore.
As SeaLead continues its expansion into new markets and with new services, Chan will provide expertise in defining the strategic development of the company, including supporting further expansion into new trade lanes and markets.
With more than 35 years of maritime-related experience, Chan started his career at sea and qualified as a master mariner in 1987, before joining OOCL and working in a number of different positions, including the role of Regional Managing Director of OOCL Singapore.
“With his knowledge and expertise, we are confident that SeaLead can further develop and continue its forward momentum,” asserted Schmidl.
“I look forward to working closely with Henry and the team to support further strategic development and growth,” commented Chan on his appointment.
Relatively new to the global shipping line sector, Sea Lead has grown rapidly in recent years and is currently ranked number 22 by industry expert Alphaliner. It recently launched a new India and UAE to East Africa service as part of its continued expansion.
